Today’s saint: St Parfait, a priest who was martyred around 850 AD in Andalusia.
Famous French person born on this day: Paul Émile (François) Lecoq de Boisbaudran (18 April 1838 – 28 May 1912). I have to mention him as he was a chemist (like Chris). He discovered the element gallium.
Famous French person who died on this day: Gustave Moreau (6 April 1826 – 18 April 1898), French symbolist painter
Today’s French word: broyeur – crusher, grinder. Why did I choose this word? Chris is busy trying to fix the grass-cutting broyeur on the back of our tractor today, but it’s not going too well!
